Proper Mouthwash Use 
Gresham families undoubtedly know the importance of brushing and flossing their teeth properly. However, McKeel Family Dentistry wants to encourage Gresham locals to also use mouthwash regularly. When added into your dental routine, it can help ensure even better oral health. 

As with any part of your oral health routine, it is important for Gresham locals to know how to use mouthwash properly in their daily routine of cleaning their teeth. Firstly, be sure to both brush and floss your teeth before using mouthwash. Mouthwash is best used after both of these steps because it helps wash out plaque and debris you have loosened in the brushing and flossing process. If you use a fluoride toothpaste, however, give yourself a few minutes between brushing your teeth and using mouthwash. Mouthwash can sometimes wash away the concentrated fluoride, which negates the fluoride’s positive effects. 

Your mouthwash product should tell you how much to use, but the amount is typically somewhere between 3 to 5 teaspoons. Follow your mouthwash’s instructions to be sure you are using it properly. Rinse your mouth thoroughly by swishing and gargling your mouthwash, but be careful not to swallow it. Spit it out where you’re done.
